The Failing New York Times are up to their dirty tricks again, trying to spin a story about debt detailed in President Trump's tax returns that we have heard before, without telling everyone the ending.
In 1995, while it was still the 'newspaper of record', the 'Gray Lady' penned a piece titled "Crowning the Comeback King", detailing how hard President Trump was it when the real estate market crashed and his rebound:
"Mr. Trump, the developer who came to epitomize opulent wealth during the 80's before tumbling into deep financial trouble, has managed to erase much of his debt and is moving ahead with major projects at a time other developers are idling."
"After the collapse of the real estate market of the 1980's, Mr. Trump's company was left holding some $8.8 billion in debt, causing his personal net worth to drop to a low of about $1 billion in the red by 1991."
Who can remember something that was written over 20 years ago? Certainly none of the far left liberals out there, most weren't even born. To be fair to the Failing New York Times, it must be difficult to recall one article written by one journalist. They had bigger things to worry about, like television beginning to overtake newspapers as preferred news sources, as well as cornering the entertainment market. However, even if you never picked up a newspaper in your life, the average American still could have learned about Trump's large amount of debt and even larger comeback: straight from the mouth of The Donald himself.
In 2004, during the intro of the first season of the United States adaption of The Apprentice, Donald Trump clearly states in the voice over:
"About 13 years ago, I was seriously in trouble. I was billions of dollars in debt but I fought back and I won, big league."
In its premier season, The Apprentice averaged over 20 million viewers per episode. At the very least, twenty million people already knew about the "Comeback of the Decade", before the latest hit piece from the owners of the slogan "All the News That's Fit to Print."
That slogan should be changed ASAP, not just because of the Fake News that has been dribbling out of the Failing New York Times for years, but the fact that they are not even original in their attacks on the President anymore either.
Only three years ago, in October of 2016, they wrote:
"Donald J. Trump declared a $916 million loss on his 1995 income tax returns, a tax deduction so substantial it could have allowed him to legally avoid paying any federal income taxes for up to 18 years, records obtained by The New York Times show."
I wonder if another article will make it's way through during Trump's inevitable second term. Keep showing the world how great of a businessman OUR President is!
